Having your family around all the time at once is certainly different than your usual days. While many of us have already become bored of seeing each other too much, it is important to look at the bright side of things and use this time to bond with one another. Not only will it bring together your family, but it will also help you sharpen your brain.
Meanwhile, the options you have for brainteasers online are massive. Some of them have gone so viral that many are cracking their brains to solve it. One such puzzle was made by Hungarian artist, Gergely Dudás. The artist, widely known for his puzzle illustrations, has hidden a penguin in a flock of toucans.
Look closely and see if you can spot the bird.
Were you able to see it? A little more focus and you may win!
keep wandering your eyes to the sides, it’s right there. Don’t ask which side because then, I might as well point it out for you.
The artist has differentiated the birds based on the color. The toucans have white faces and grey bodies while the penguin has a grey face with a white belly.
Ok, now its time for you to see the answer. Here it is:
There are many more brain teasers on the internet that are just as interesting as this one. Apart from artists, companies have also promoted various puzzles. Swift Direct Blinds from the UK created a puzzle where people had to find a bee hidden amongst the colorful flora. Though it looked like it was just another viral game, the company had other intentions. The company hoped to raise awareness about bees and their preservation through the puzzle. They wanted people to understand the role played by the bees in balancing the ecosystem. The founders also wanted to bring to notice the decline in the bee population due to pesticide use, diseases, and habitat loss.
“Bees are considered the most important group of insects as far as pollination of plants is concerned. Pollinators have a huge impact on the crops produced by the agriculture industry throughout the world,” stated Alan Read, founder of environmental services business AMES Group to Country Living. He further added, “Crops such as apple, alfalfa, berries. cantaloupes, broccoli, rapeseed oilseed, almonds, cotton, etc. are all bee-pollinated, and were it not for bee’s production, such crops would be severely diminished. 30% percent of cultivated crops and around 90% of wild plants are pollinated by honeybees.”
The company is thrilled they could associate such an important cause with a puzzle and spread their message to masses. “Brainteasers and optical illusions are always a hit around the office and to be able to tie in with such an important cause is great. The hidden bee has really stumped a lot of people! We hope the blind generates some fun and a talking point among people and raises some awareness at the same time,” said David Roebuck, Managing Director at Swift Blinds Direct.
Last year, Canine Cottages, a service, which provides dog-friendly houses for travelers and pet owners across the UK released a themed puzzle for the festive season. “Adorable little Frenchie Pierre has joined his humans on a trip to the North Pole to visit Santa Paws, but got distracted by the hundreds of polar bears having a Christmas party in the Arctic! After deciding to join in with the fun and make some new furry friends, he’s got lost in the crowd – and it’s up to you to find him,” stated the website.
Now that you have many puzzles to solve, make the most of your free time!
